The first U.S.S. Montpelier was a German ship that was seized in 1917. It provided logistical services to the Navy by transporting troops and supplies during World War 1.
The second U.S.S. Montpelier, CL-57, a Cleveland Class Light Cruiser, known as the "Monty" or "Legend of the Solomons" fought fiercely and bravely in the Pacific Campaign during World War 2 receiving 13 battle stars, and the victim of numerous Japanese Kamakazi attacks during the Battle of Leyte Gulf in November of 1944.
Today, the newest U.S.S. Montpelier, SSN-765 patrols and protects our Democracy as one of the most modern and stealth crusaders of the undersea. The Los Angeles Class Nuclear Attack Submarine commissioned in 1993 has received numerous Efficiency awards and has been awarded the Naval Citation Unit in its short existence. Our ship is equipped with the most sophisticated weaponry known to mankind today. The Montpelier name, affixed to the hulls of these great vessels, have crisscrossed the oceans of the world both in war and peace serving our country, protecting our freedom, with outstanding performance and diligence.
